  • RE: Second job tax

    Hello, my son has just turned 16. He delivers newspapers for a national retail chain and earns £10.50 a week (and a bit more if he does other rou ds). He has just started doing occasional shifts at the local, independent boat hire centre, and earns £40 a day. They have just paid for his first two shifts but deducted basic rate as he has two jobs. As he is now 16 both jobs pay him by BACS. Can you correct his tax code so he doesn't pay basic rate tax ?He won't earn anything remotely near £12k a year. Surely there is a pragmatic solution to this.Thanks
